Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Sweet #1
     "Embrace the Forbidden
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?
     This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
     Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?"

This book is an interesting one. I really enjoyed it, it was a new take on the Nephilim story. While most focus on Nephilim being the children of angels, most only focus on the notion of them being the children of good angels to fight against evil. This book is about the Nephilim being the children of fallen angels, or better known as demons. Namely the demons of Sin.

Anna is the child of the Demon of substance abuse, and a guardian angel. While she doesn't know any of this for most of her life, she never going to parties, or doing any under-aged drinking, or doing drugs. Always remaining the good girl, until she meets Kaidan Rowe, the son of the Demon of Lust. She is drawn to him against her better judgment, and it is from him that she finds out what she is and what that means for her future.

Honestly, nothing that happened was really that predictable for me. I was enthralled with this story and I cant wait to read more. I only wish that I didn't have to wait to read the third book, but alas, it is not out yet. Obviously, I am leaving out important plot descriptions for this story. But this is one book that having spoilers for won't help anything. Knowing too much about the story will only ruin the things that set this story even more apart from other YA-fiction romance novels. Sweet Evil is a must read for all those that enjoy paranormal Ya-fiction.
